The Great Gatsby - full unit of work for A level

A full unit of 12 (2 hour long - 24 hours total) lessons aimed at A level students studying the text for AQA English language and literature, but could be adapted and used for any A level course. Resources are particularly useful if you are working towards an exam question that requires transformational/recreative writing and commentary writing. All referenced resources included, plus a list of practice exam questions and a top grade exemplar exam response (written by me, not from board). Will save a lot of planning time and give you lots of ideas for varied activities as well as close textual analysis tasks.
